Inscription.  The Spring Hill meeting house was built here in 1785. The church yard was used as a community burying ground. In 1813, this was conveyed to a board of commissioners and designated to be used as a burying ground forever. It was called Craighead Spring Hill Cemetery. In 1881, the state issued a charter for the incorporation of Spring Hill Cemetery. Thomas Craighead, the first preacher and teacher at Spring Hill Meeting House is buried nearby in the church yard.
